Sexual Game Links
Interestingly, there seems to be an ever-growing number of games or game announcements, or at least talk of games, that have sexual content or sex as a theme — enough to warrant a post. Here’s a few of the links that I’ve been gathering:
- Mojo Master, a free advergame (sponsored by a deodorant company) is a pretty good flirtation game, with high production values. It applies Magic-the-Gathering-style card gameplay to the idea of competitive flirting; it’s an interesting take on the concept of social/head games. It’s more successful than, say, Sprung for the DS looks to be. Then again, check out Project Rub…
- A Singles: Flirt up your life! sequel is coming out, Singles 2. Looks a bit more flushed-out than the first version.
- The Montreal Game Summit, happening right now (there are so many game symposia / conferences springing up everywhere!) is having another one of those Game Design Challenges, this time on Sex in Games.
- Wired News just reported on the recent Women in Games conference in Austin, and mentions two sexual games in development, Spend the Night and Naughty America (others include Rapture Online, Heavenly Bodies and Red Light Center). In the article IGDA sex SIG organizer and Playboy the Mansion simgame designer Brenda Brathwaite is interviewed, who gives enthusiastic praise to your favorite dysfunctional marriage game.

Um, I have some more to add:
The wildly popular: Orgasm Girl;
The multiplayer Kama Sutra game for an Oz multi-platform series, Forget the Rules;
BMX XXX, The Guy Game, Leisure Suit Larry, Playboy The Mansion, Sims Singles;
And the more recent Virtual Girlfriend bot;
And then there are “artistic” sex games (?!):
Machine Sex Action Group;
Linda Erceg’s Skin Club, ‘Emulator 1999 + 2001’, ‘Skin Pack 2000’, ‘Soft Styler 2000’ and other more recent works, and here is an article I was commissioned to write on her;
There’s a book on digitally constructed “beauties”…

Some of the reality-simulating MMORPGs also offer virtual sex these days–but you have to pay for the sex using game credits purchased using real-world money from your credit card. I can only imagine how greatly the creators profit…
